Acute Trust
Job Type

Wirral University Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is one of the biggest and busiest acute NHS trusts in the North West region, with an income of approximately £335 million and more than 5,500 staff. We are the largest employer in Wirral and provide a full range of acute healthcare services across the Wirral peninsula, Ellesmere Port and Neston, operating from three main sites. 

We are focused on providing exceptional patient and family centred care to the communities we serve. We deliver this through integrated, seamless, continuous pathways of care enabled by innovation and leading edge technology. Central to our strategic development is the transformation of services locally and we have made good progress in developing closer collaborative working relationships within the broader Cheshire & Merseyside Health & Care Partnership. 

Following a significant change in organisational leadership in the Trust with the recent departures of our Chair and Chief Executive, we are seeking a values-driven Chief Executive who can inspire our collaborative Executive team and our dedicated workforce. This is a pivotal time for the Trust. We are committed to embedding a positive and supportive culture that promotes leadership and accountability at all levels. 

This role requires a visible and engaging leader. You will bring a track record of successfully transforming complex acute healthcare organisations. With a reputation for developing high performance cultures, you will bring a positive and energised approach that will quickly build trusted relationships internally and externally.  Most of all you will share our passion and aspiration to provide high quality care, through our people and with our partners, in an empowering and patient-focused environment.
